Hey everyone, I just got a great deal on a K100D to ease myself back into SLR photography.

Back in high school (class of 84), I was one of those geeky kids with a K1000 hanging around my neck all the time (still have and it still works great). In fact I used it regularly right up until I finally went digital in 2001. I've mostly used a Canon Compact Digital during that period, but I have often stared longingly at the pile of K-mount lenses sitting over in the corner of my basement office.

So far I'm having a great time and since I am so enthusiastic about it, my kids are starting to show an interest. It's be so cool to turn my whole family into Pentaxians. I am really hoping a forum like this will help bring me up to speed on the differences between shooting with a 35mm SLR and a DSLR.

Sorry about the Canon thing, my wife made me do it.
